Looking ahead to the weekend

The weekend forecast promises to be great for spending some time outdoors. Saturday and Sunday should be crisp but sunny, so why not head out to look at some pretty fall foliage?

Globe correspondent Thomas Caywood offers his picks for the weekend, including Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston.

Also, Doublet Hill in Weston rises about 360 above sea level, and is a great place to check out some colorful leaves.

Don't feel like walking? Jump in the car and take the scenic road down Route 20 through Wayland and Sudbury, then head into Marlborough and onto Route 85 to Hopkinton State Park.

Got some great photos of foliage? An astounding tree in your own backyard? We'd love to see them! Send them to Erica Tochin at
